Did the same essential BIG COUNTRY approach.

Because the poll only allows 15 tracks,
I'll tell you which ones I added to expand my self made collection with.

essential  BIG COUNTRY
Fields of Fire / Harvest Home / In a big Country / Chance / The Storm / Close Action /
Wonderland / East of Eden / Flame of the West / Where the Rose is sown / Just a Shadow /
Look away / The Teacher / Eiledon / One great Thing / King of Emotion / A broken Heart / Peace in our Time

Their first album The Crossing was a smasher, and I also loved the second one Steeltown.
Didn't mention outstanding tracks like 1000 Stars, Tall Ships go or Rain Dance.
Third album The Seer was a step back and the fourth one Peace in our Time had only a few good singles.

My favourite track would be Harvest Home: makes me wanna bang my head.

Look Away was always a favourite of mine, but beaten by Where The Rose Is Sown as it strikes a chord with an ex-soldier...

In a big Country, had to be done, as it was the song that at the time got the band a first head up.. The sad news, was in recent time to hear of the death of the front man, I forget his name..

Stuart Adamson.
Saw him on Never mind the Buzzcocks some time before he died.
I thought: what is he doing there, this left-wing defender of the working class ethos?
He must have been close to suicide already.

I only know about 3 Big Country songs, but voted East of Eden, as it was the first Big Country record I bought.



Nigel ?  Oh yeah, he's up there !
